England ended up topping Group D at Euro 2020 with a 1-0 win over the Czech Republic on Tuesday, while Luka Modric saved Croatia with a sensational goal and an assist in their 3-1 victory over Scotland.
Thus Croatia also reached the last 16 as the runners-up of the group and the Czech Republic, despite the defeat to England, still advanced to the knock-out stages as one of the four best third-placed teams.
According to Xinhua, the clash between England and the Czechs was to decide the winners of the group as both teams have already assured a place in the last 16 into the match.
England will wait to host the second-placed team in Group F at Wembley one week later.
Their next opponents could be Portugal, France, Germany or Hungary.
In Glasgow, midfield master Modric struck a stunning second-half goal, before setting up another for Ivan Perisic to help Croatia beat Scotland 3-1.
Next up for Croatia will be the second-placed team from Group E, which might be Spain, Sweden, Slovakia or Poland.
